PHOENIX (AP) - Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama's administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.
The Republican governor had said in a post Friday that Facebook censored the item she posted Thursday because it apparently violated Facebook's community standards.

FB removes stuff all the time.
Facebook is a Red Diaper Doper Leftist outfit through and through. I wouldn’t open an account with them if my life depended on it.
Well Since they took it off by mistake , one would think they would replace it.
Since nothing that goes on the internet ever disappears completely , you would think they have a copy somewhere and they could repost it.
And so it continues. Big Brother and Hussein have scrubbed articles to hide Hussein’s past and now it’s censoring social networks. Just another in a long and growing list of why not to use FB.
That mistake today will be FB policy tomorrow.
Well, now that they can’t claim she used an illustration that she had no right to, they had to put it back! I suspect they use this one to pull a lot of things and that people don’t know how to defend themselves against this lame standard set by F/B.
They’ll try anything to protect the Oblamey One.
Bingo. That was might first thought also. They need to put it back up if it was just a “mistake”.
>Looks like Facebook is another communists arm of the left wing of the MSM.<
Looks like? They are. Zuckerberg is one of the biggest obama jock-sniffers, aside from the Google founders.
The idiot that runs Facebook is as dumb as they come!!! Oh, yes, he may be rich and famous, but.....trying to cover up for failed POTUS Obama is not a successful way to go through life!!! Facebook can scrub and spin for Obama all they want and it will not help Obama one iota!!!
Now what was not widely known becomes widely known - BHO to limit deportations of illegal immigrants. That’s the lemonade.
I posted a story about the Gunrunning scandal today and it was removed. So I just re-posted it. That one is still up. Give’s them something to do.
I am going to put this article up there and see what happens..I could care less if they take me off it isn't all that as a site anyway..
LOL! Except Facebook is like the Hotel California: once you join you can never leave.
What you said. Although, we must be among the last 400 or so folks that haven't.
“Just another in a long and growing list of why not to use FB.”
No, it’s a good reason to use the tools of the left against them. We have a local group using FB to post Agenda 21 articles. They may not like it, but they haven’t stopped it so far.
Wish there were a way I could “UNLIKE” Facebook
Someday it might.
The Leftists operating within any organization often disregard the rights of those with whom they disagree regardless of corporate policy.
If FB is in fact unjustly censoring, then another social site focused on neutrality should emerge.
Google has some type of social “Circles” site, but Google isn’t exactly the prime example of neutrality.
Wait’ll he has to pay O’s taxes for the ‘rich’.
Make that 401. I refuse to have a facebook or twitter account. I see absolutely no point to it. The wife keeps bugging me to sign up, but it’s not gonna happen. Unlike failing at being the last man in America without a cell phone, I know I can hold out on facebook.
I don’t have a FB acct either. If they’re any more successful, they’ll be taken over by the government.
And then it’ll be mandatory.
This was all over the local AZ news last night, believe it or not. They even interviewed the Governor. They also questioned several college kids on the street, probably thinking they would be critical of Gov Brewer, but surprisingly, every one of them said that FB had no right to remove the post from her page.
“How Chris Hughs (co-founder of Facebook) helped Launch Facebook and the Baracj Obama Campaign” - April 1, 2009
Don't need the drama.
But in any case, you can't totally escape it. We were at the beach earlier this summer and a relative, unbeknownst to us, put up pics of our kids in the water. Friends of friends--who we barely know---now knew we were a few states away and that there was at least 1 house in the neighborhood unoccupied.
Facebook has far more on you then any FBI file ever could.
associations, pictures, statements, time stamped location
add in google and you have an even closer view of the persons psyche
why people vulonteer such information is beyond me
You all do know that these leftist dudes like suckerberg assume they will be amoung the elites living in privledge while the masses are dining on old bread crumbs.
UNLIKE it all the time, simple, never go there. FB is as idiotic as “texting”.
400 + 1!
The funny thing is, when Socialists (and moslems) censor things, the censorship gets so much publicity that EVERYBODY sees the story + gets the message anyway.
Similar to this was the “forced removal of billboards” regarding islam and Omoslem’s communist tendencies.
Thats why a BUNCH of us are leaving facebook and doing Google Plus. I was censored yesterday in a post critical of Obama on FB. Google +’s Audio/video chat is cool, too.
Yep, that be the truth! And he dips into their money all the time.
I wouldn’t be surprised in the least!
Governor Jan Brewer
After I posted the following statement and photo yesterday, Facebook censored the post and removed it because the photo apparently violated their "Facebook Community Standards." Before it was removed, it had received over 10,000 likes and comments.
Regardless, I'm reposting the photo and statement. I think many of you will agree with me - - Obama's backdoor amnesty plan violates American standards of following the rule of law and the US Constitution.
Please click "like" and share with your friends.
The Obama administration cannot get its amnesty schemes through Congress, so now it has resorted to implementing its plans via executive fiat. Theres simply no other description for todays announcement that the federal government will not pursue the deportation of individuals who are in the country illegally but meet certain criteria.
This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegal aliens. Especially disturbing is that it comes in the wake of the Obama administration sanctioning the sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels even as border states such as Arizona come under threat from those same illicit organizations. With this announcement, the President is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.
Just last month in speaking to the National Council of La Raza, President Obama rejected the idea of bypassing Congress and imposing immigration reform. He said, "Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And believe me, right now dealing with Congress, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting But that's not how our system works. Thats not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written."
President Obama got it right last month and got it really wrong today.
Over the next 15 months, Im certain well hear a lot of talk from the Obama administration about its concern for border security. Those of us who truly care about the rule of law will remember the Presidents actions of today. We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.
I fully expect it; about the same time that a mark on the hand or forehead will be required to buy or sell.
Google is every bit as leftist as FB. And they track your activity and sell it to others. Dump them completely. I use Startpage, for all my search engine activities.
I'm on a quest for low-tech living of late. You can't eat bytes of information, but you can eat the produce from your own garden and the products of your livestock. That will be a million times more valuable than the bilge people are lapping up nowadays in the very near future. It will be why the Left eventually perishes.
Snip (link to article below...) Yet despite hundreds of people flagging the page as inappropriate, and despite pages set up specifically to protest the kill Palin page, Facebook has refused to remove it.
That evil FB page is still up today even though it is in direct violation of Facebook's policy. And FB removes Governor Brewer's post for "violating" their policies? Unbelievable!
